The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a group of conservatives and libertarians interested in the current state of the legal order. It is founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be. This podcast feed contains audio files of Federalist Society panel discussions, debates, addresses, and other events related to law and public policy.

    Occupational Licensing, Antitrust, and Innovation 8-9-2017

    Regulatory Transparency Project

    Every state has laws or regulations that require individuals seeking to offer a certain service to the public first to obtain approval from the state before they may operate in the state. Recent years have seen a significant proliferation of such laws, with less than 5% of jobs in the American economy requiring a license in the 1950’s to between 25-30% today. Although licensing in some occupations may benefit the public by reducing information asymmetry and/or ensuring a minimum quality level for a particular service, the significant growth in the number of occupations governed by some form of licensing requirements poses a potential threat to competition and consumer welfare. Our panel of experts will discuss these important issues.

    This event took place at Crowell & Moring in Washington, DC, on August 9, 2017.

    Featuring:

    • Hon. Maureen Ohlhausen, Acting Chair of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission
    • James Cooper, Associate Professor, Scalia Law School at George Mason University
    • Sarah Oxenham Allen, Senior Assistant Attorney General, Office of the Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Virginia
    • Moderator: Koren W. Wong-Ervin, Director, Global Antitrust Institute, Scalia Law School at George Mason University
    • Moderator: Lisa Kimmel, Senior Counsel, Crowell & Moring LLP

    As always, the Federalist Society takes no position on particular legal or public policy issues; all expressions of opinion are those of the speaker.

    The State of Antitrust Enforcement 6-9-2017

    Corporations, Securities & Antitrust Practice Group

    Antitrust policy during much of the Obama Administration was a continuation of the Bush Administration’s minimal involvement in the market. However, at the end of President Obama’s term, there was a significant pivot to investigations and blocks of high profile mergers such as Halliburton-Baker Hughes, Comcast-Time Warner Cable, Staples-Office Depot, Sysco-US Foods, and Aetna-Humana and Anthem-Cigna. How will or should the new Administration analyze proposed mergers, including certain high profile deals like Walgreens-Rite Aid, AT&T-Time Warner, Inc., and DraftKings-FanDuel?

    This lively luncheon panel discussion covered these topics and the anticipated future of antitrust enforcement. This event was held on June 9, 2017, at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

    Speakers: 

    • Albert A. Foer, Founder and Senior Fellow, American Antitrust Institute
    • Prof. Geoffrey A. Manne, Executive Director, International Center for Law & Economics
    • Hon. Joshua D. Wright, Professor of Law, George Mason University School of Law
    • Moderator: Hon. Ronald A. Cass, Dean Emeritus, Boston University School of Law and President, Cass & Associates, PC
